what if you could fly

still looking at clouds from both sides....

clouds 640


  1. This picture makes me want to LEAP! I want to jump high and fearlessly from cloud to cloud.
    To capture such an instant emotion is a credit to photographer you are.
    To see an image that makes me want to LEAP in the sky ...inspires me to live a life without baggage or fear!

  2. It's like a world of its own. Magnificent!

    1)And if you care, don't let them know
    Dont give yourself away

    2)Its loves illusions I recall
    I really dont know love at all

    3)Tears and fears and feeling proud
    To say I love you right out loud

    Hello Rachel, hope you're doing well. I copied these lyrics because the interesting thing to me about this song is the 'lost fator', (which we all must vier thru this path someday). The problem I see w/the 1st few lines is when you care, you should give yourself away. Again, courage. The lacking there of is why there is confussion in the 2nd lines. She has 'love illusions' & don't know love because she is afraid to express & be intouch with her real feelings. Love must not be stifled. This is why in the 3rd lines, she's unhappy, 'being proud'. Love is golden & meant to be free & when there's the chance to have it, nothing or anyone stands in the way of such a marvelous thing. This is why, she is, (the song writer) confussed & lonely. Her vision of what is, is clouded & probably will continue to be as long as she's afraid to let go, afraid to be one with her emotions. Never let clouds stand in the way of a good thing.

    Good luck sweety,
    Betti Jane

  4. thats a good analysis of song!

    i think put it up because no matter how great life's going... sometimes clouds get in the way and its def up to each individual to find their sunshine.... and who hasn't felt bittersweet now and again?

    When I look out the little window and that is all I see,for a minute I forget whats below them and what has to happen when I land. What a great feeling that is for a moment.

    Yes Rachel, sometimes clouds (people, finances, sircumstances, vices, fear, the past, etc.) can get in the way, but more so than an individual 'finding their sunshine', one must 'recognize their sunshine'.

    Here is the key to recognizing your sunshine: when sunshine appears, it warms your heart-sets you all a glow, you look forward to it, need it, miss it when it's not there (you look for it). Then rain falls, (others around you bringing rain) clouding up your view (relating or not relating to said 'sunshine' but affecting it).

    What this is, is our test of worthyness. If you pass the test, fate will step in. If you fail you will lose fate.

    So recognize your 'sunshine' when it appears, claim it before it shines elsewhere.

    The universe want's us to be covered in sunshine, it is us who wants to be covered in darkness.

    Even though we may be remiss, what's for you is for you so there is always the 'second chance' factor.

    Go get it sweety,
    Betti Jane

  7. I look at this picture and I just want to lay down on the fluffy white clouds - they look so comforting.
